This book is the first detailed account of the development of a complex and successful expert system based on deep and qualitative knowledge. It shows how the qualitative modeling approach, using logic based representations and machine learning techniques, can be used to construct knowledge bases whose complexity is far beyond the capability of traditional, dialogue based techniques of knowledge acquisition. The relevant techniques are demonstrated in full detail in the building of Kardio, a...

The traditional assumption that stock price changes could in theory be forecast by sufficiently detailed analysis of previous price fluctuations has only recently been found to have little empirical support when examined statistically. Some investigators now conclude that stock price changes are best approximated by classical Brownian motion.

This volume brings together for the first time John von Neumann's long-out-of-print articles on computer architecture, programming, large-scale computing, and automata theory. A number of significant papers in these areas that were not included in the multivolume John von Neumann. Collected Works (1963) have now been reprinted here. These pioneering articles - written between the mid-1940s and the mid-1950s - are of enduring value not only to computer historians but to computer scientists at...

A vital force in European linguistics and literary scholarship in the 1930s, the Prague School opened up the rich field of semiotics and art. The study of art as the creative use of the sign became one of its principal areas of critical examination, and in this collection of 21 essays this concept of semiotics is brought to bear on a wide range of the arts, including theater, film, poetry, folk art, and painting. The editors are professors in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literature at...

The central conceptual idea of the contemporary theory of general relativity _ or geometrodynamics _ is the identification of matter with the structure of space-time. No entities foreign to space-time. This idea implies a philosophical description of the universe that is monistic and organic, characterized by an all-encompassing interdependence of events. Moreover it is an idea with deep roots in the history of philosophy. For these reasons, the author of this philosophical and historical...

The study of literary style is often regarded as the exclusive province of the literary critic; yet, since verbal and literary expression are types of behavior involving the use of linguistic forms in a cultural context, it is apparent that the linguist, the psychologist, and the anthropologist are also concerned with aspects of verbal and literary style. The question then arises: Will interaction between these diverse disciplines result in a clearer understanding of the nature and...

In this book, Hans Wussing sets out to trace the process of abstraction that led finally to the axiomatic formulation of the abstract notion of group. His main thesis is that the roots of the abstract notion of group do not lie, as frequently assumed, only in the theory of algebraic equations; they are also to be found in the geometry and the theory of numbers of the end of the 18th and the first half of the 19th centuries.

When urban renewal got under way in the early 1950s, it meant to the man in the street (or the man down the street from a renewal project) the demolition of buildings and the dispersal of neighborhoods. Even when the approach and emphasis changed several years later to rehabilitation _ the conserving of neighborhood character by restoring buildings and leaving the population intact _ the planning authorities were still regarded with hostility and suspicion.
